Na Slamníku, (one of ) the oldest bar(s) in Prague.

Na Slamníku has served alcohol for over 400 years, putting it well within the perimeters of oldest bar, a hotly contested and uncertain badge of honor in Prague.

Ye Olde Starre Inn, York.

Ye Olde Starre Inn, 1644, is the oldest licensed public house in York.
